The series of sculptures in the Submit | Submerge series draw upon the archaic imagery of seafarers. In these works, I interweave brightly colored rope, elaborately braided leather, and lustrous perle cotton with hand-carved objects cast in cold cement to create an array of intricately labored objects. Evoking the tools of a marlinspike sailor and the language of luxury leather goods, these objects hang like ominous pendulums or prized baubles. My aim is to employ familar materials in startling ways; these works are thus able to evoke imagery of of BDSM culture and luxury leather goods.
